Elora Festival: Ships in the Night

  • Elora Festival 136 Metcalfe St Elora, ON N0B 1S0 Canada (map)

Early in his career, the genius Handel spent five inspiring years in Italy, but no record exists that he met the prolific Italian composer Vivaldi; it appears that they passed like ships in the night. Supposing these two giants did meet, let’s sample from the motets, operas and instrumental music they might have performed for each other. We are joined by the internationally renowned soprano Agnes Zsigovics in a co-production with Nota Bene Baroque Players.

Agnes and The Nota Bene Baroque Players have been invited to the Elora Festival's 35th Year Celebration for a repeat performance of this successful program. It was originally performed in Stratford and Kitchener last September as part of InnerChamber.
